As an early multihuller (had a 45 ft Tri built in then British Honduras in the 1960s) the word was
Cats for Coastal, ,,,,,,,,Tris for Trans Ocean.
Of course almost all was sail then,
but the ability to be upside down on a Cat after a heavy sea still holds.
Fuel for range is heavy , multihulls are dangerous if heavy ,so wind power is a better choice than a ton of fuel.
